Workshop on Parallel Computational Biology, Gdansk, Poland
September 9-12, 2007


Bioinformatics is the science of managing, mining, and interpreting information
from biological sequences and structures. This is an exciting and emerging topic
that requires solving hard computational problems and handling large volumes of
data. Many new challenges in the life sciences require high performance

The goal of this Workshop is to present the latest research in high-performance
computing applied to bioinformatics. We are especially interested in parallel
and distributed algorithms, memory efficient algorithms, and design of
high-performance software for clusters, massively parallel systems and grids.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Bioinformatic databases
* Computational genomics and proteomics
* DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping
* Gene expression and microarrays
* Gene identification and annotation
* Molecular sequence analysis
* Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms
* Protein structure prediction and modelling
* Parallel algorithms for biological analysis
* Parallel architectures for biological applications
* System tools that support large scale high-performance bio-computing

The PBC Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Seventh International
Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics PPAM 2007, Gdansk,
Poland, September 9-12, 2007 (http://ppam.pcz.pl).

Paper Submission and Publication

The workshop will consist of dedicated sessions containing selected papers.
Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their originality,
scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics. Papers presented during
Workshop will be included into the proceedings of PPAM and published after the
conference by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.

Information regarding paper preparation and submission will be announced soon.
